A Washington teenager is competing internationally in cycling this summer and at the National Championships this weekend. Fifteen-year-old Alijah Beatty is taking part in the National Championships in Madison, Wisconsin, and will soon travel to Quebec Canada for the Tour de la relève internationale de Rimouski.
